Wireless freedom, why you should choose Bluetooth audio
It still feels like something of a revelation to enjoy music wirelessly, we turn on, tune in and enjoy. No wires, no worries, no accidentally cutting off your song prematurely because of a tug on the cord. We have the will, and in today’s devices and wireless audio equipment, we certainly have the means.
The way we are able to make almost all devices wireless now is that nearly all devices have Bluetooth connectivity as standard, and that is important when it comes to wireless headphones and earphones. When we think about Bluetooth, perhaps our thoughts go straight to headphones, but in-ear earphones have been catching up fast, due to their popularity for sports and fitness where a larger set of headphones just aren’t practical.
Bluetooth is ideal for personal audio, with a range of up to 32 feet, excellent energy efficiency and support across virtually all mobile devices and other sound equipment. But it doesn’t end there, there is much more to it than that.
Farewell to the headphone jack?
Perhaps the day is not too far away when the beloved (or dreaded, depending on your personal point of view) headphone jack disappears in the same way as VHS, audio cassettes and floppy disk drives. But for now, at least a vast majority of mobile devices still have the trusty 3.5mm headphone jack or equivalent, depending on your brand of the device. However, the move to kill off the headphone jack is already gathering momentum and that is the driving force behind Bluetooth’s ever-increasing rate of improvement.
